From Simou To Polis
The end of the year is fast approaching, but we thought there was still time to squeeze in one last road trip before the bells ring in the New Year. So join us as we take a scenic route from Simou to Polis, and revisit some old haunts along the way, with some new surprises...
Paphos is Going Green!
The first time I saw a picture of a green Cyprus I was amazed. We had only ever visited in early or late summer at the time, and had no idea how verdant Cyprus gets in the colder months.
To Scarfos Bridge
Anyway, it is a cloudy yet sunny day, which is perfect conditions for a little road trip. We are starting on the approach to Simou. The turning ahead points to Skarfos Bridge, which is our first port of call.
Drink In The Scenery
First, let's take a look around, to see how spectacularly beautiful Cyprus looks this morning.
No Visible Snow Yet
There is snow in the mountains, but it hasn't yet reached the peaks of Paphos Forest.
The rains which have triggered all the green are also slowly filling Evretou Reservoir, which you can see in the centre. It is now 30.7% full, compared to this time last year, when it was 29% full. I would love it if it overflowed, as the overflow dam looks pretty impressive. Plus I could get to visit that grave to see what it looked like with a full lake.
